Singas Comments on Nassau County Topping List of Safest Communities in America

September 30, 2020

NEW YORK – U.S. News & World Report released a list of the safest communities in America and Nassau County, New York is number one. With a population of 1.3 million, Nassau County received a Public Safety Score of 100, according to a U.S. News Healthiest Communities analysis which gave an overall score of 71.4 and overall rank of 136. The county “performs best in per capita spending on health and emergency services,” U.S. News reported.

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said, “I am incredibly proud of the work my prosecutors, investigators, and support staff do every day to keep the people of Nassau County safe. Our partnerships with the Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies yield results and I’m so happy that others have recognized our efforts.

“We will continue to engage with our communities by providing support, education and access to services for anyone who needs them. We will continue to pursue MS-13 and other gangs, take on gun violence, fight domestic and elder abuse, tackle the opioid crisis, shut down scammers and prosecute public corruption. And all the while we will ensure there is justice and fairness for all.

“Thank you for supporting my work. Together, we will continue to make Nassau County the safest place to live.”
